Welcome

  • School counselors work in collaboration with teachers, parents, and the principal. The counselor acts as the student advocate in the educational environment.

    Please contact the Counseling Department if you: 

    • Wish to arrange a conference with your child's teachers.
    • Wish to share a change at home.
    • Have a question regarding middle school practices.

    Some of the additional services middle school counselors provide include:

    • Classroom lessons on community safety and learning strategies.
    • Consultation with parents, teachers and administration.
    • Problem centered counseling.
    • Referrals to outside agencies for therapeutic services.
    • Assessments for special services.
    • Facilitation of special education process.
    • Assistance with long range planning.

Counseling Groups

  • The Middle School Guidance Office offers support groups to address various needs. Our groups meet once a week for approximately six to eight weeks. Groups are small, confidential, and facilitated by a counselor. The student groups are designed to be preventative, short-term, supportive, and developmental. If interested in joining one of the student support groups please click on the link below and return the permission slip to Guidance Office.
